For those who do not already suspect from various insinuations made here in the past, the truth is that I and a close friend closely monitor the origin and behaviour of Kumekucha traffic virtually on an hourly basis. We use two different independent online tools that give us all the details including the ip addresses of every single visitor to this site. They show that at times the ip addresses are blocked. This is neither the time nor the place to go into the probable reasons of why somebody would want their ip address blocked so let us leave that story for another day.
One of the wonderful tools I use even gives me an instant breakdown on the exact numbers broken down in countries that are coming in to Kumekucha at any given time. Looking at those stats you don’t need a clock to know what time certain states in America are waking up to a new day. This graph shows that there are patriotic Kenyans scattered in every country you can think of all over the world.
Less than half a percent of the visitors to this site usually leave a comment. Meaning that it is impossible to gauge the real reaction of our readership to any post just from reading the comments. This is because out of those who read this site, such a minute fraction of a percentage usually leaves comments. Here is a breakdown from the statistics monitored over a long period of time.
1. 99.5% This is the vast majority of visitors. They do not leave any comments and rely heavily on Kumekucha for information on what is really going on behind the scenes. In recent times these numbers have understandably gone down as the rate at which this insider information is released in this site has gone down. This group includes newspaper and media house ip addresses that probably use the site to get ideas and leads for articles and stories in the main stream media. In this group will also be found those who read a post and look for direction and public opinion from the comments not knowing that some of those leaving comments are on a deliberate mission to control how information here is received and digested.
2. All the other groups fit into one single tiny percentage point of the total visitors who come to Kumekucha. This group includes a group who visit Kumekucha for entertainment. Their idea of entertainment is to leave abusive comments sometimes targeted at their imagined enemies and many times against the writer of the post.
3. Also in this tiny group are people whose job description includes ensuring that the influence of the blog is limited and that the impact of information released here is reduced as much as possible. These people work for various interested groups whose agenda could easily be affected if Kenyans had some certain bits of information that Kumekucha is notorious for revealing.
4. Again to be found in this group that is less than a half of a percentage point of the total visitors to Kumekucha are folks who have no idea what is happening here. They assume that this is just another blog where the founder dreams up fiction in his bedroom and quickly publishes it shortly thereafter. This group quickly warms up to group number 3 above and is usually quick to grasp and follow through on the ridiculous and doubting comments made by this other group.
5. There was a time this last group was fairly large. These are people who genuinely love their country and want the best for it. They look to this site to find like-minded people. The problem is that SOME of the good folks with good intentions in this group are naïve and easily swayed by group number 3. Some of them will never believe that this blog is monitored by any security agents even if the evidence was waved right under their very noses. (Incidentally I have lots of evidence to prove this particular point). The reason why this group has decreased in number is no accident. A carefully orchestrated campaign has always been targeted at everybody who leaves comments here and appears to fit under this category. Very crude tactics have been used and are still used to stop the good people in this group who are viewed as a threat for obvious reasons. Ladies are dealt with by using abusive language (one was repeatedly told that she is pregnant with the child of another commentator and that is the last time we heard from her). Occasionally we are forced to moderate comments because of the barrage of abusive language and comments left here. This is never an accident but a cautiously executed campaign that is usually successful in losing us hoardes of readers at a time (as our traffic and ip monitoring clearly shows us.)
It was therefore hardly surprising that my post yesterday (deliberately done on a weekend) received the kind of comments it did. To liven up things a little I even left a comment in Taabu’s post telling all you good folks to expect my explosive post this weekend. I know that I messed up the plans of some people to have a quiet long weekend away from work and the city, but I did it deliberately.
The whole point of this post is to summarize the key points in my last post because you will realize that with all that is going on in this blog it is easy to miss pertinent points in an article like my last long post. Secondly I would like to explain in a little more detail the meaning of some of this information.
- I revealed that there is a parallel intelligence unit and even gave the name of the person in the president’s inner circle who set it up. As far as I know this has NEVER been revealed before. This unit enjoys all the facilities and access that a top government unit would have except that it is in private hands and therefore is hidden from public scrutiny. It also means that if there is an investigation in future over certain evils that happened during the Kibaki era there will be hardly any evidence because officially this thing does NOT exist. The scary question here is why would there be need to set up such a thing? One possibility is to do something that there must never be any evidence of.
- What I said about the rapid expansion and meteoric rise of the AP police force is no secret and is in the public domain. However by going back to history and giving the example of the Ngoroko and Kenyatta’s inner circle in the last days of his presidency, my post brought some disturbing questions to the fore. More evidence is to be found in the appointments to key security posts (to avoid questions). And then you need to answer the nagging question; what is all this fuss with the AP about? In view of the fact that we all know that President Kibaki has already shown that he is unable to stomach the idea of handing over power to somebody else who could hurt him and dig into what he has done during his tenure means that there is great cause for alarm here. It should be pretty obvious to Kenyans that Kibaki will never hand over power to anybody but his appointed choice ONLY. Anybody who believes otherwise is dreaming and should wake up pronto.
- When you consider all this information next to the looming succession it becomes very clear that Kenya is in very serious trouble and it looks like we are already so deceived and conveniently too divided along tribal and class lines to be in a position to stop those who have taken the country hostage.
P.S. There was a dear reader who recently asked me to do a post on those who would wish a speedy demise of this site. I hope that this post gives them a large percentage of the answer they are looking for. Please let me know.
